Sholing 8-0 Chamberlayne Athletic

Kevin Brewster provided 5 assists as the Boatmen progressed to the Southampton Senior Cup Quarter Finals. From "Brewy's" cross, Dan Miller headed in on 6 mins. on 14 mins, via a deflection, Jake Hoole found the net and Sholing were 3 up at half time when Brad Targett slotted in from Dan Mason's set-up.  Chamberlayne played their part and matched the Boatmen, especially after the restart, but then tired as Sholing scored 5 goals in the final 15 mins. Dan Mason headed in a Brewy cross, then the Miller/Brewster corner combo was repeated, before Lee Wort got his head to Brewy's near post corner.  Brad Targett had a shot go a foot over the line, but wasn't given, but seconds later he swept in a cross from... yep, Kev Brewster.  Goal number 8 was a nice bit of interplay that was finished off with a rasping shot by Lee Wort.  Boatmen are now at home to Bush Hill in the Quarter Final - Match Report

Sholing 1-0 AFC Stoneham

Boatmen went through to the Russell Cotes Semi Finals thanks to Lee Wort's early goal. Wort latched onto a through ball just ahead of the keeper to prod past him and into the empty net on 7 mins.  Jake Hoole hit the bar and Wort went close twice more before half time. Second half was not the best, only lit up by Brad Targett hitting the post and Ryan Gosney making a terrific save at a Stoneham's player's feet.  However, it means 23 games unbeaten (22 of them won) and 21 clean sheets for Sholing. Boatmen are away to Fleet Town in the Semi - Match Report

Cribbs 0-2 Sholing

Boatmen advanced into the last 16 of the FA Vase with a controlled victory at Cribbs FC.  The goals came right at the start and right at the end of the game, but for long periods, Sholing had to stay well organised and defend.  Dan Mason opened the scoring on 10 mins when he received TJ's cross that was dummied by Brad Targett and drilled low into the corner for goal 37 of the season.  Cribbs dominated the second half possession wise as Sholing sat back with Gosney saving well on 53 mins and he was grateful a couple of times that the home side fired straight at him or over when well placed. Deep into added time, a long clearance downfield saw Lee Wort get to the ball and go past the last defender before rounding the keeper to make sure of the victory as the Boatmen take another step on their FA Vase adventure - Match Report, Photos & Video

Sholing 3-0 Christchurch

A tough game for the Boatmen for over an hour, but once they took the lead, they then finished off Christchurch with some quality finishing. The first half was devoid of goal mouth action at either end, but Sholing should have had a penalty when Marv was taken out, but ref wasn't interested. The energetic & combative visitors were restricting the Boatmen's forward play, but the breakthrough came on 69 mins when a big scramble following a corner ended with Dan Mason heading just over the line before it was cleared.  10 mins later and TJ's deep cross into the box saw an unmarked Byron Mason deftly head the ball back past the exposed keeper.  On 84 mins a typically fantastic finish by Dan Mason was the icing on the cake. D-Dan controlled the ball with his back to goal 12 yards out and hooked his effort over his shoulder and into the corner.  It took the goal tally for Dan Mason & Lee Wort to 401 for the club as the Boatmen made it 17 wins out of 18 and are now the only club at Step 5 level still unbeaten - Match Report

Shaftesbury 0-3 Sholing

Boatmen were back to winning ways in the League, thanks to three quality finishes at Shaftesbury.  On 7 mins, Brad Targett collected the ball from a corner, just outside the area and curled a fantastic effort beyond the keeper and into the far corner.  The young forward then set up the 2nd goal on 16 mins, slotting a pass through the defence for Marv McLean to run onto and from a tight angle, he smashed a vicious right foot shot in off the far post. Miller & Dan Mason also both went close in the first half.  Home side were on top after the break, with Gosney making a couple of good saves, but the game was made safe on 66 mins when from a corner, Owen Roundell beyond the far post, steered a looping header back over the keeper and just under the bar.  Sholing will be top at Christmas, still unbeaten and 11 points ahead of 2nd place - Match Report
